  1. As expected the HD 7970 puts up a good showing. Earlier estimates of improvement of ~30% in gaming and ~50+% in compute tasks (over the HD 6970) seem pretty much spot on.
    All in all a nice card - great power consumption, a little loud, and a nice bump in performance over the GTX 580 and HD 6970. Looks like a good overclocker with worthwhile gains over stock clocks. Very welcome after the HD 6950/6970's good OC potential / lacklustre OC performance.
    Could have been priced better, but thats what you get for being the performance leader.
